Did anyone watch the Royal Wedding yesterday? Lol. Okay, enough with that joke. : ) I didn't wake up at 3 am EST to watch the ceremony in real time, though I might have if I hadn't put in a long day writing and found my way to bed just shortly before that. I watched recaps of the ceremony later in the day. I think, though, I missed out on quite a bit.
The recaps that I saw were actually highlights of the event, rather than full recaps, recapturing all that took place. Sure there was the bride's arrival and the awaited reveal of her gown. Her march down the aisle on her father's arm. The reciting of the vows. All of this, though, I found, was broadcast in clips, rather than in one steady stream and it took the immediacy out of it for me. Though I knew what I was watching was being telecast hours later, I would have liked the illusion that the lovely event was actually taking place at that moment. : )
